  • Presented here, for the first time since their publication over a century ago, are twelve previously unknown published works of fiction, poetry, and journalistic writing by Bram Stoker (1847-1912), three works never before reprinted, twelve period writings about Stoker, and the rare 1913 estate sale catalogue of his personal library. -- Presented here, for the first time since their publication over a century ago, are twelve previously unknown published works of fiction, poetry, and journalistic writing by Bram Stoker (1847-1912), three works by Stoker never before reprinted, twelve obscure period writings about Stoker, and the exceptionally rare 1913 estate sale catalogue of Stoker's personal library. Through both the original works and extensive archival research presented, this vital collection sheds new light on an enigmatic writer and rejects the view that Dracula is Stoker's only legacy worth consideration. The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker underscores not only the intertexuality between Dracula and the other works, but supports the exciting prospect that Stoker's periodical writings account for a much greater force in his literary repertoire than previously accepted. A must-read for Stoker fans and scholars, this collection offers an important window into fin-de-siecle Gothic literature. 
  • "The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker is impressive right from the first page, in that the book is revealed to be a collaboration between three people considered experts in vampire lore in one fashion or another: John Edgar Browning and Elizabeth Miller are both well regarded academic scholars in the field, and Dacre Stoker, a relative of Stoker's and a novelist in his own right, provides a insight about the Stoker family. Browning edited the entire volume, while Miller only wrote the foreword and Stoker the afterword, but the concept of all three together on one project was a smart move ... If you are expecting a full selection of readings that are somehow gothic or horror-themed, be forewarned-this is not Dracula-there are comedic writings and even love stories in this volume; however, if you have any interest in Bram Stoker at all, this is a book for you." - Horror World 'In this treasure trove for Stoker devotees, editor Browning offers up previously lost or unknown works by the famed Dracula author, providing a fascinating look into Stoker's psyche ... What's most surprising is that despite his best-known work, Stoker was in his time known as selfless person whom many wouldn't have pegged as a writer of dark gothic novels. This is underlined by a heart-wrenching short story of a young widower ('A Baby Passenger') and the revelation that the author wrote romances-such as 'When the Sky Rains Gold,' included here-as well as children's stories, fantasies, and mysteries. This well-edited book will interest Stoker fans and literary historians alike.' - Publishers Weekly 'A curious collection of miscellaneous writing by the author of Dracula. Browning digs into obscure archives for lost works by Stoker (1847-1912), who maintained a rich writing life while serving a 30-year tenure as business manager for the actor Sir Henry Irving, based at the Lyceum Theatre in London ... The tales included here display some of Stoker's weirdly meandering plots and mischievous humor ... [and] a fascinating catalog of the items for sale at the 1913 auction of Stoker's property, especially his library, full of books by his friend Walt Whitman.' - Kirkus Reviews 'The Forgotten Writings of Bram Stoker is a book that belongs on the bookshelves of everyone who is interested in Dracula, Stoker, or the long nineteenth century.' - Carol A. Senf, author of Bram Stoker (Gothic Authors: Critical Revisions) and Professor and Associate Chair of the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture at the Georgia Institute of Technology 'Another fascinating volume from a rising star in Stoker research. With each new book and each new discovery, John Edgar Browning coaxes the elusive author of Dracula out of the shadows and into revealing focus. ' - David J. Skal, author of Hollywood Gothic and The Monster Show "Most remember Bram Stoker today only for his monumental Dracula. Browning's amazing literary detective work helps to refocus our picture of Stoker, showing him as part of a fascinating circle of writers and friends in 1890's London. This is a most welcome volume for both scholars and readers!" - Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Dracula and The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes.
